Howdy Partner - Gift Card Tag

  My birthday is on the 20th, so naturally GIFTS are on my mind! 
When I started this project, the only thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to use faux wood paper to cover the tag.  I spent about twenty minutes going through my paper pads and scraps (whew), before I found the papers I though would work best together. 

Forgive the coloring!  My nibs were mostly dry.  It has been a long time!
  Another 15 minutes was consumed in looking through my ephemera.  Finally, I decided to use the bottom edge of a piece of 6"x 6" paper. The grouping was nice and established the color theme for the tag!  The rest was easy peasy.  I used a Sizzix rub on for the face!

Supplies Used:
Tag:  I traced the shape of a  G45 Regular tag album onto a sheet of faux wood dp from MME's Pretty Things. I applied one coat of gesso and one coat of varnish.  Looks like real wood!

Image:  Prima Doll (Becky), I used Sizzix's Dress Up Faces Rub On to add a face.  The paper pieced clothing is from MME's  Lost and Found3  "Oliver."

Paints:  Ann Butler Designs™Iridescents : Lagoon and Sheer Silver
